If I were in charge of MLP one thing I'd do is change up Princess Luna. Her look really doesn't scream princess of the night to me. I'd actually prefer her as Nightmare Moon as a recurring villain; barring that have Nightmare Moon as Luna's superpowered side when she needs to get shit done!

I love it when we have characters who use dark magic or have dark themes that aren't evil because that's extremely rare in America. Darkness gives you an air of mystery and forbidden-ness. With Princess Luna, as the one who fights the things that go bump in the night she should look almost as twisted as said bumps. She's the thing nightmares fear the most!

I like Luna but her whole pitiable attitude and guilt trip gets old very fast. Every fucking time she gets used they HAVE to bring up Nightmare Moon and how ashamed she is as if it's her only character trait. That's because we can't bring up princesses or actually develop them without a massive wave of backlash. They barely even want to address the problem, but just let it grow and fester within her like to no big deal!

How would I change up Luna in appearance? Keep the fangs first of all! The fangs right away give her an unearthly and uncanny appearance t not only differentiate her from Celestial but show her ferocity. In addition I would Ayer her aura Mane somewhat to radiate with a chaotic flow and utilize the unmoving plaid effect of the ether of the Dream Realm. I'd have her eyes express a look of psychosis amidst a clam exterior to show the fury of Nightmare Moon lying within. And finally bat wings because they're fucking awesome! If nothing else put the fuzzy wuzzy princess in some badass armor like her guards!

More importantly is I'd have her issues with Celestia be openly adresed more often. She was essentially sentenced to a millennium of solitary confinement! Just a month of that irl fucks with your sanity in massive ways! So I'd have Luna still have these trust and mental issues and try to deal with them day by day! Not have them totally vanish, but she would be getting shit done! One thing I absolutely my loathe about the show is how it thinks issues and traumas can be undone with a click of the hoof! It imparts the lesson that even if you DO get over your mental issues they'll still come back to fuck you over and that's just horrible!

Sunset Shimmer in the Equestira Girls movies is what Luna should've been (nothing like the first Movie but you get my meaning) working through her past and not letting it hold her down. If Do Princesses Dream of Magic Sheep? is gonna hold any water, she can't still be all mopey about her problems!

Oh yeah, and if she is going to be recurring have her episodes feature the dream realm in some capacity as well. These kinds of episodes can deal with any number of issues from fear and anxiety to dread and grief. If she really is teaching Twilight her dream magic have her come along as well for backup in case something like the Tantabus ever happens again and she's OOC. It shows that Twilight is a Pony Luna can trust to comfort and truly help her her when she need it. Think the dynamic between Gandalf and Bilbo Baggins.

In all seriousness, I do think she can be developed better, but I don't want her too look edgy.

I don't want her to look edgy either. I just want her to have an air of fear to her. At 
Least keep the fangs and the mane idea.

For me, I like to turn Princess Celestia into the real villain of the series like Palpatine/Darth Sidious from Star Wars prequels.
